O is for OBITUARY...notice of death of  a dear young cousin who passed away on the 13th October 2012, in our local Malay newspaper. His elder sister and I went to the newspaper office to place the obituary last week.

He was one great photographer , specializing in black and white photography. Lots of his photos in Instagram, and there will soon be a photowalk in Singapore in memory of him.

  May you rest in peace for now, till we meet again on the other side.
